Peter Danholt

Associate professor

My research is broadly concerned with studying empirically how human beings, technologies, materiality and discourse are interwoven in mutually transforming processes of becoming.

I study the design- and use practices of welfare technologies e.g. self monitoring devices, telemedical technologies, and robots in care and their effects focusing especially on design approaches such as Participatory Design and Userdriven Innovation.

I use qualitative and ethnographic methods and conceptually I rely on approaches in the field of STS (Science, Technology and Society-studies), such as actor-network theory and poststrukturalism.
